HSV Reveals New Gen-F Commodores


Holden Special Vehicles has revealed its latest Gen-F range of goodies for the new Commodore.

HSV is to Holden what M is to BMW and AMG is to Mercedes. It’s Australia’s premier skunk-works division, and following the reveal of the redesigned 2014 Holden Commodore VF Series, the automaker's official performance arm has revealed its sixth-generation HSV Gen-F range. The Gen-F lineup includes the Commodore sedan and station wagon, a pair of utes, the luxurious Senator Signature, long-wheelbase variant of the Caprice dubbed the Grange, and Holden’s flagship ZL1-powered GTS.

Starting with Australia’s most powerful production car, the HSV GTS uses the Camaro ZL1’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 rated at 577 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque. It comes with an extreme body kit, taller bootlid spoiler, quad-tip exhaust, uprated brakes, 20-inch twin-spoke alloys and a leather interior. At the other end of the scale is the Clubsport sedan and SportWagon, and the Maloo ute, which are all powered by GM’s 6.2-liter V8 rated at 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, and come equipped with four-piston brake calipers, launch control (for manual models), bucket seats and eight-inch infotainment screen.

Completing the lineup are two luxury models, the Senator Signature and Grange, both coming with the 456hp version of the V8 as well as a Bose sound system, head-up display, magnetic control adaptive suspension and an understated body kit.
